PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Police departments in some communities are increasing their presence at schools Wednesday, one day after a deadly mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

An 18-year-old gunman killed 19 children and two adults as he went from classroom to classroom at Robb Elementary School. The gunman also died.

It’s the deadliest shooting at a U.S. school since a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, in December 2012.

“Our hearts go out to those impacted by the horrific, senseless acts of violence that occurred earlier today in Uvalde, Texas,” Providence police posted on Twitter. “Providence PD will have a heightened presence surrounding our city schools and will remain vigilant in our efforts to keep our students and community safe.”

Bristol and Seekonk police also posted a similar message.

Our efforts in keeping our students, schools and community safe will always be a top priority of this department,” Bristol police wrote on Facebook.

There is no threat to Seekonk. This is only a precautionary measure.”

Cumberland police say they are also increasing their patrols, and have been in close contact with Superintendent Dr. Thornton and are working in collaboration with him and his administration.

“The Cumberland Police Department both grieves for the lives lost and those forever affected by the unspeakable tragedy at Robb Elementary School in Usvalde, TX.

Swansea police reassured on Facebook that they regularly review safety plans in place for all schools in the district.

“Chief Marc Haslam and the entire Swansea Police Department wish to extend our deepest and sincerest sympathies to the families and the community of Uvalde, Texas. School shootings are a tragedy felt by an entire community and the nation.

We pray we will never have to put these plans into action but are confident in our ability to protect our children.”

Warwick police said they also maintain an “excellent working relationship” with the school Resource Officers (SRO).

“All the SROs have also been trained with specialized equipment to respond to various threats. They are more than ready to handle any crisis within the schools. Our SROs are the frontline of security at our schools. However, we also work hand and hand with the Warwick Police Department Active Threat Specialist to ensure that school staff and our officers receive the best training possible.Our SROs are not only responsible for the security in our schools, but they also act as mentors for students and facilitate programs within the schools to help accomplish this task,” their post on Facebook read.
